Sony laptops rarely have usb problems. However you may have plugged a usb pen drive or broadband dongle into the usb port. Sometimes the port can get damaged by the dongle or pen drive. Inside the laptop the usb works with 5 volts. There are 2 data points and 1 positive and 1 negative. 4 points alltogether. The usb ports are quite easy to repair you just need to desolder the broken port and replace it with a new one. The big problem is when the usb suffers a short and blows the chipset. The sony laptop will in this case need the motherboard replaced.
Sony laptops have excellent motherboards. Sometimes though the laptop will not turn on, this is in some cases because of the chipset. A sony vaio motherboard has two chipsets. One on the north bridge and one on the south bridge. The chipset control the voltages around the motherboard. When a chipset on a motherboard dies this is often very bad news. you can see in the image on the left the large chipset chip. A chipset does not have legs that you can unsolder and replace the chip. It has around 400 points underneath the chip that some times needs re balling. This is the process of placing tiny balls under the chip heating up the chip and board and replacing the chip in its original position. If a chipset dies on a motherboard there is only a 10% chance of repar. If the graphics card chipset dies and its made by intel the chances of repair are also around only 10%. if the graphics card chipset is made by nvidia then the chances of repair jump to 60%.
